MedicalXpress.com - Researchers successfully test model for implant device reactions

A team from the University of Texas at Arlington has used mathematical modeling to develop a computer simulation they hope will one day improve the treatment of dangerous reactions to medical implants such as stents, catheters and artificial joints.

Other co-authors on the study were Jichen Yang, a visiting scholar of mathematics at UT Arlington, Larrissa Owens, a PhD student and National Science Foundation GK-12 fellow in mathematics, and Akif Ibraguimov, professor in the department of mathematics and statistics at Texas Tech University.
